Building Regulations changes - Part L thermal performance of buildings
The Government releases the new Part L 1A and L2A Approved Documents and amended L1B and L2B Approved Documents effective from 6 April 2014.
The new Approved Documents detail the next step changes to the Government’s intention to achieve zero carbon dwellings by 2016 and zero carbon non-dwellings by 2019.
The Part L 2013 notional building specifications have been strengthened to deliver 9% carbon dioxide savings across the non-domestic building mix and by 6% across the new build homes mix for which could result in buildings being more costly to deliver due to these changes the Domestic and Non-domestic Building Services Guides have also been revised accordingly.
To keep up to date with all the changes for thermal performance of all buildings including solutions for compliance and details of the other changes that have already taken place sign up for one of our nationwide Building Regulations courses.
